My now-husband and I were set on having a waterfront ceremony because of our love of the Eastern Shore. Back in late 2019, I was losing hope and made a call to the Wellwood one night out of desperation. I will never forget Angela, the event coordinator, asking me what was important to me and asking me questions about my husband and I. Back then, I’d consider myself jaded from the wedding industry, as a lot of venues were more into cramming as many ceremonies at once to make maximum profit. But Angela never made me feel like that – especially not during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, when I called her in a panic and debated about postponing. When things were constantly changing, she was very understanding of my concerns and laid out what we could do to solve them.
Our ceremony was beautiful, facing the Northeast River, complete with a grand entrance that Angela helped facilitate with my bridal party. Guests were shuttled to the ceremony site. My only complaint is that I wish there were better options for guests in wheelchairs at the ceremony site and transportation, as the shuttle did not have a wheelchair lift. The food was excellent, even though there were some mix-ups with food on my end and a guest did not inform me they had allergies. Overall, an unforgettable night that was well worth the wait.
Wellwood is 5 Stars
The food and service were outstanding. The food was served hot and tasty, which is not easy for 200 guests. The Pavilion transforms into a magical place.
This a place to have your wedding
